NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Ryan Callahan will be on the ice on Monday night when the Rangers host the Ducks at Madison Square Garden.

The captain missed nearly three weeks with a broken left thumb that he sustained in a game against the Capitals on Oct. 16.

The Rangers, winners of three straight, can’t wait to get Cally back in the lineup. And the right wing insists that he’s ready to return and contribute.

“It is 100 percent, it feels good,” the 28-year-old said. “The last couple of days of shooting have gone well. It has reacted well. Wednesday is three weeks (since the injury) and that is what we were aiming at. It’s ready to go.”

It’s been a rough start to the season for Callahan, who missed the start of the Rangers’ campaign after undergoing shoulder surgery in the offseason. The game in Washington on October 16 was just his fifth of the season.

The forward scored three goals — including two power-play goals — in his five games played.

Heading into Monday night’s game, the 6-7 Rangers are in fourth place in the Metropolitan Division and in ninth place in the Eastern Conference.
